Apple Steve Jobs just announced in his Macworld Keynote that Apple is releasing its own browser, called Safari. Its claim to fame is extremely fast performance on the Mac. The Mac platform has struggled from sluggish browser performance with IE (the old default browser). Update: According to Jobs, Safari is open source and based on khtml. It only runs on Mac OS X and will be available for download today.

but does anyone really use IE5 anymore? It so slow it could only be deliberate; Omniweb is good and Chimera is just fantastic, my 800Mhz iMac is far faster than my 2.1Ghz PC running IE. Lets hope Safari is as good or better.
